‘American Idol:’ In Memoriam – I don’t mean that in some vindictive way; truth be told, I haven’t really cared enough to be outraged since probably 2009, when Kris Allen defeated Adam Lambert in a polarizing finale before disappearing from the face of the earth. And I’m not saying it out of frustration, either … at this point, I’ve gotten used to the ill-advised shakeups at the judges’ table, ridiculous “feuds,” questionable Top 10s, and underwhelming champions that have sadly become this show’s recurring themes. – Read more at MTV

Which ‘American Idol’ Finale Song Is Best?

But both of them have great messages, so I applaud the songwriters of both of those songs and the fact that they really had substantive lyrics in both of them.” – Read more at MTV

‘American Idol’: Stylist Nra Kudelka on Candice and Kree’s style evolutions – “I can only do a certain amount of prep work until I know what their song selection is,” Kudelka says. “It makes a huge difference if they’re singing a ballad, if they’re singing an uptempo song, how they’re moving, what the staging is going to be. That all plays into how they need to look.” – Read more at Entertainment Weekly

News: Jennifer Lopez on Returning to American Idol – As for returning to the judges’ table next season, “I don’t know! When I say, ‘I don’t know,’ people think, ‘Oh, she’s playing a game.’ I’m not,” Lopez said. ” I really don’t know. If it became really real where I had to make a decision, I would have to sit down and really weigh out the options of what my life looks like in the next year to see if I would sign. Because it does take up a lot of time, and I do have a lot of other things going on that I’m super excited about. So we’ll see.” – Read more at TV Guide
